SOME, Inc. dba, So Others Might Eat
January 29, 2010
I was fired from my job after 8 years of employment. I applied for assistance and was sent through the standard programs that DC offers for job training, my confidence was low and I felt that I needed more training. I was fearful of failing and being out of a job or being on welfare forever. I found the handout for CET through the ARCH Jobs (a job readiness program in the District). The process was easy to get in, I applied one week and started the following week. I was defeated and fearful in the beginning, I was able to open up about those concerns and work with them the entire time that I was enrolled. The staff was always open, always ready with a open mind and understanding heart. The closer it got to graduation I didn't want to leave. I didn't have to worry the staff was still there while I was in job search. They stayed on top of me and still after 3 years they still know me by name and I know that if I need anything that they are just a phone call away. I really thank them for helping me get my confidence back and being able to enter in my career.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my career. I have used the training that I have received in the program. The technical as well as the human development sessions and have used them in my career to advance. CET has helped me to see I still have more to learn.
